These wall hangings are created using Tapestry Crochet for the background. Tapestry Crochet is similar to regular crochet, except that two or more strands are worked at the same time to create a colourful fabric. The colours not being used are carried along the top of the previous row. Double (US-single) crochet stitches are worked as you would normally, through both loops of the previous row and over the top of the carried colours.
The flowers use florists wire and wadding to create a 3-D effect and are appliqued to the background.
DMC Natura one of each in N01 - Ibiza, N05 - Blue Layette, N11 - Noir, N29 - Lazulite and two of each in N21 - Gauguin and N23 - Passion.
2.5mm hook, tapestry needle, two hanging rods.
Florists wire is used on the petals and leaves to keep their shape and stop them drooping when hung.
